Loose Women was taken off air after protesters interrupted the show.

As Ruth Langsford spoke to Coleen Nolan about her struggles with weight loss, there was a commotion in the ITV studio, as fathers' rights protesters shouted: "No kids no cash!"

The show cut to a standby screen with the Loose Women logo for around 20 seconds, as shouts faded away.

Nolan joked: "Can we get back to me?"

A message was immediately posted on the Loose Women Twitter account, saying: "Apologies for that small interruption."

Another tweet added: "The show was briefly interrupted today by 3 members of the audience making a peaceful protest. Sorry for any disruption to your viewing."

Singer and actress Michelle Heaton tweeted: "Wow @loosewomen love that you came back on air within seconds ... well done! Xx".

One viewer, Ian Wright, wrote: "Wanted to congratulate all on the panel & the background staff for the way they dealt with it! #professional".

Another tweeted: "What is that on @loosewomen ? Stupid campaigners ruining the show, or attempting to!"
